A reacting fluid in a closed vessel may lead to a thermal runaway if the rate of heat generation exceeds that of heat removal at the reactor wall. Natural convection, arising due to the density difference between the heated and cooled parts of the fluid, can delay or suppress an explosion. Such an effect will be analysed using time scales of the heating and cooling mechanisms in the system.
